I had a great time at Camping the camping! John, Sara, and all the animals are so lovely! The camp is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains which made walking the dogs my favourite part of the day! The tasks are straightforward and not too demanding. I also had plenty of time to explore the surrounding area once done for the day. John and Sara are also very generous and offered to drive me to some of the nearby towns :)

Me and my brother had an amazing time at the camping. We learned how to make beer and meet other travelers. I really enjoyed walking the dogs with John every morning and learn about whatever we were doing in the day. Loved the experience!

Volunteering with Sara and John was fantastic. They are always a joy to be around with and it was a pleasure working with them in the camping site. During our stay the work ranged from walking the dogs most mornings, painting some signs, making beer, helping them build a summer kitchen and a few other things. I learned a lot from them along the way and can highly recommend this placement.

Sara and John are wonderful hosts, very relaxed and great company. The campsite is situated in a beautiful part of Bulgaria, surrounded by mountain ranges which we got to experience most mornings whilst walking the dogs. It's been rewarding and fun learning new skills, making beer and helping to build a summer kitchen using some reclaimed materials. I've absolutely loved it here and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

I had an amazing time at Camping the camping. Sara and John were lovely, I had good food and they even drove me and the other volunteer to enjoy the surroundings on our free days. Doing the chores really felt like helping them around the place and not like working for them. I practiced painting, gardening and organization skills. I had my own room and privacy, sharing the kitchen, living room and bathroom only with the another volunteer. the camping is a super calm village, it's a rural experience and I enjoyed a lot since I was looking for being disconnected of the urban life.
